“I Want to Stay Away”: Emotional Damar Hamlin Explains ‘What Doctors Told Him’ After 7 Seconds of Deep Pause and a Silent Breath

Damar Hamlin had a close shave with death a month ago in the NFL. While talking to Michael Strahan recently, Hamlin opened up about his situation but he froze after one particularly difficult question. Now, after a brief period in recovery, Hamlin’s immediate reaction was complete silence to the question, Why did your heart stop?

The NFL league was brought to a sudden halt when Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest on the field. It was Week 17 and he was playing against the Cincinnati Bengals.

A young athlete’s worst nightmare

NFL fans were in shock after the Hamlin incident. Especially, because Hamlin is just 24 years old. He is in the prime physical condition of his life.

Hamlin, talking to Strahan, said that there were no symptoms of any kind to expect such an unfortunate incident. As NFL tests the players regularly, doctors did not find any anomaly in Hamlin’s routine tests. Similarly, the medical unit didn’t come up with any reason for his cardiac arrest on the field.

During his conversation, he answered the difficult question, “How did doctor describe what happened to you?” The safety probably could not process the impact of the whole incident again. But after 7 seconds of deep pause and a silent breath, Hamlin said, “ I want to stay away”

It should be the worst nightmare for an extremely well-trained and fit athlete to experience a full-blown cardiac arrest. Likewise, Hamlin would have been in a state of shock at his predicament.

NFL fans go crazy after Damar Hamlin’s reaction

Damar Hamlin would have envisioned a completely different situation for himself. Unfortunately for himself and NFL fans, his return to the field does not look certain right now. When asked about playing again, Hamlin said, “As a competitor, I’m trying to do things just to keep advancing my situation. But allowing that in God’s hands. I’m just thankful he’s giving me a second chance.”

NFL Twitter fans were vocal during the Hamlin incident. After his interview with Strahan, fans could not contain their theories and reactions.

Some Twitter users valued Hamlin’s privacy.

Contact sports, especially American football, are intense. The players are always playing at the one-inch mark to dangerous territory. Evidently, some moments in the game can be heart-stopping, albeit literally in Damar Hamlin’s case. Though the NFL management is constantly restructuring safety protocols, unfortunate incidents prop up now and then. Looks like there are a lot of unknowns in Hamlin’s situation. NFL fans will be looking forward to a lot of answers.
